One hour Dom-Intl MH-MH connection at KUL, enough?

Hi all!

We are flying MH business class in April from KCH thru KUL to HKG, arriving at KUL at 1745 and leaving at 1845 (all in one ticket). Is it going to be enough? I know that I am probably arriving into the Connect Pier and departing from the Satellite Terminal. So, there is going to be immigration and Skytrain (if it is back in operation by then) to be dealt with in one hour. I am kinda concerned that it will not be enough. Should I take the earlier flight out of KCH and allow for a 3-hour connection at KUL instead? I can probably luxuriate across the Golden Lounge instead.

Thanks!

1 hour is definitely enough. The bags should make it through in that time too, as long as your KCH-KUL flight is not delayed. Immigration is usually very fast and the transfer time with the buses (if the skytrain isn't working yet) is still very fast. There won't be enough time to enjoy the Golden Lounge in the Satellite terminal. If you take the earlier flight, you'll get to enjoy the lounge and, believe me, it is definitely worth it!
